You need to call your city and ask them about zoning for your property.

Check with the city or county for your local zoning.

The best person to talk to is your county clerk. They typically know just about everything about the ordinances. Don't be fooled by a residential zoning since that often has absolutely nothing to do with what you can do with your land. Around here in NC, all farm land is zoned residential and you can have as many farm animals as you want regardless of the size of your property as long as they are not abused, neglected, or kept in an unhealthy fashion.

You don't know what boarding means?

Public boarding stables are the norm for most horse owners.

You pay someone else to house your horse. Depending on the boarding arrangement, that could run anywhere from pasture board with nothing but water provided, to full stall board with feed and hay included, as well as use of all the facilities.

You live in Lancaster county, PA. Surely with the number of horses in your area, there are boarding stables.
